Monarch cabin description

Forest Creek is a beautiful vacation home located in Colorado's mountain wilderness. A secluded place for skiers, snowboarders, hikers, whitewater rafters, writers, naturalists, photographers or those seeking tranquility. This mountain style cabin was built in 1999 and has 2460 square feet. The front porch and balcony have a close up view of Monarch Ridge towering above. There is also a back porch and balcony, with a cascading stream (South Fork of the Arkansas River) running below and the rocky craig in the near distance.

Inside you are welcomed into a great room with cathedral ceilings accented with an Empire Gas Stove. A flat screen TV with Blu Ray DVD player and an assortment of DVD's await your visit. The great room opens up to the dining room and there is a fully equipped kitchen off of the dining room.
The master bedroom equipped with TV and DVD player is located downstairs and has a French door leading to the back porch. For a treat try the slipper tub for a relaxing bath.

Upstairs you enter a sleeping loft with two full size beds with a French door leading to the front balcony's majestic views. There are two bedrooms with French doors leading to the balcony overlooking the river. The west bedroom has a full bed. The east bedroom has a king and a bunk bed and a TV for video games and game table. A full bath is located upstairs.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2010

              About the owner: Harry grew up in Salida and the first time he took me to visit, I was enchanted. Some of his fondest memories are of hiking back into the mountain lakes and creeks to fish and getting to skii Monarch. I grew up in the hot, humid south and love the cooler temperatures with low humidity and eagerly look forward to retirement in Chaffee County. When we are on our way to the cabin and we see the snow capped mountains, we know we're nearly home.

              Why the Owner Chose Monarch:
              We bought Forest Creek in 2010 and it was love at first sight. The natural setting is beautiful with the river, the majestic cliffs and the forest. In the fall, the beauty of the fall color is awe inspiring and the sound of the river and waterfall are soothing to the ears year round. From the time you enter the cabin you feel at peace, knowing this is a place where you can unwind and remove yourself from the stresses of life. The cabin has lovely views from every window porch and balcony.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              Forest Creek is your great escape in any season! For the winter guest.. Skiing Monarch is #1, with all natural powder.. Or you can have a great time sledding, snow shoeing, skiing, or snowmobiling . For warmer seasons, the list of activities is unlimited: mountain biking, horseback riding, 4 WD exploring, Zip-treking, searching through galleries, antique stores or fabulous yarn shops. Evening fun in Salida can be catching live music in taverns or coffee houses or The Steam Plant.
